Halid Er-Rahmuni, Moroccan member of parliament from the Justice and Development party (PJD) said Istiqlal Party's (IP) decision to quit government had nothing to do with the incidents in Egypt.

PJD is the major partner in the governing coalition.

Rahmuni told Anadolu Agency that Istiqlal party's decision to leave the governing coalition was taken on May 11.

"A coordination with the political powers in Egypt made the perfect military coup there," Rahmuni said.

When asked about coalition crisis PJD deputy said they tend to hold early elections to go to real source of sovereignity, the people.

Rahmuni also underlined that the reform model in Egypt was different than in Morocco and without real reforms stability could not be reached. He said that in Morocco was a stable constitutional democratic electoral environment.

Istiqlal's spokesman Adel ben Hamza also says their decision on May 11 was taken after Prime Minister Abdulillah Benkiran had rejected their demands and not related to Egypt.
